Second half charge

Hawick Legion Rovers 3

Gala Athletic 1


ATHLETIC scored the only goal of an evenly fought first half when Mike McCauley scored his second goal in as many games.

Following the changeover, however, Liam Lawrence put Rovers on level terms after being set up by Andrew Tinlin.

Rovers then took the lead when a Gala player headed a Luke Cooper shot into his own net.

After Rovers’ Jordan Caldwell had been sent off for dissent, Gala began to push for an equaliser, but Rovers’ Chay Caldwell, the younger brother of the dismissed Jordan, beat the visiting keeper with a fine shot on the turn to secure victory for the homesters.
